Residual stresses near the weld metal of the joints before and after a thermal cycle were measured using a reactor based neutron diffraction technique in room temperature. In-situ residual stress measurements were performed on the plate type sample using a pulsed neutron diffraction technique under thermal cycles. Residual stress behaviors of the samples were examined also by the idealized explicit FEM (IEFEM), which agreed well with the experimental results of the residual stress behaviors during thermal cycles. Thermal stresses were induced near the weld metal by the difference of the linear expansion coefficients of the dissimilar base metals. Since the thermal stress exceeded the yield stress of the material during the first heating process, the residual stresses near the weld metal were redistributed and a part of the residual stress was relaxed.
